How many cars are registered in Delaware?

I don’t have a car, but I’m getting ready to move to Delaware. Are there a lot of cars there? Is it a good idea for me to get one, or can I just use public transportation?

According to the 2020 census, there are 415,915 cars in Delaware. This number is very low compared to most other states in the U.S.
The low number of cars in Delaware is due in part to the fact Delaware is smaller than many other states and has a lower population. However, the density of vehicles per square mile is still relatively high.
Depending on which city you’ll be in, public transportation is an option that you could explore! If you’re in a less-populated area, however, it might be a good idea to have a car. That will ensure that you can get around and learn about your new hometown without being limited by the scope of the bus route.
